The new drama improved its hour from the year-ago night ("Nashville" on 11/18/15) for ABC by 25% in Total Viewers (5.5 million vs. 4.4 million) and by 20% in Adults 18-49 (1.2/4 vs. 1.0/4). On average, "Designated Survivor" leads the season in Live + 7 Day TV Playback, spiking over its L+SD numbers by +7.3 million Total Viewers and by +2.0 rating points among Adults 18-49.

Projections Rationale:

Lifts vs. L+SD are based on 2015-16 season averages for originals (excluding the premiere).

Returning shows: Profile based on same show (either premiere or averages for originals).

New Series: Based on similar series.

A note about DVR penetration: DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample is currently at 49% in U.S. TV Homes. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which are increasingly not reflected in the overnight Live + Same Day numbers. As a result, the Live + 7 Day ratings are the most accurate Nielsen measure to gauge the size of the TV audience.
